UEFA reportedly 'agree' with Jose Mourinho and AS Roma over Anthony Taylor's performance

UEFA are reportedly reviewing Anthony Taylor's performance in the Europa League final and 'agree' with Jose Mourinho's claims.
Mourinho hit out at the Premier League official following his showing in last week's Europa League final between Sevilla and AS Roma.
Sevilla beat Roma 4-1 on penalties, with the Portuguese boss making his feelings known over Taylor's showing after the final whistle.
His outburst led to the 44-year-old being mobbed at Budapest airport in shocking scenes, with fans turning on the veteran manager.
But, according to Calciomercato and Corriere dello Sport, Mourinho and Roma weren't the only ones critical of Taylor's outing in the Europa League final.
Reports claim UEFA 'agree' with the 60-year-old's claims and will review the English referee's performance.
It's believed UEFA designator Roberto Rosetti was unimpressed with Taylor's handling of several situations. From Fernando's handball to the penalty he awarded to Sevilla, which was overturned by VAR.
It could mean he is not given another high-profile assignment like a major European cup final.
Former Swiss referee Urs Meier, however, reckons Mourinho should be banned from football for a whole YEAR for his actions towards Taylor.
"It's just a no-go that he threw the referee at the fans," he said.
"He already did that when he was Chelsea coach with Anders Frisk [former Swedish referee who took charge of the Blues' infamous game against Barcelona in 2005], who received death threats and then ended his career as a result.
"You have to take the stage from him and consider whether he can no longer be part of international games for a year."
